    Description

    [Arthur Rackham] J. M. Barrie. Peter Pan in Kensington Gardens. London: Hodder & Stoughton, 1906. Limited "de-luxe" edition of 500 copies, of which this is number 352, signed and numbered by Arthur Rackham on the limitation page. Quarto (279.4 x 235 mm). xii, 125 pages. Illustrated by Arthur Rackham with fifty color plates mounted to thick brown paper (each plate approximately 7 x 4 inches) with captioned tissue guards. Pictorial gilt-stamped vellum decorated on front board and spine, with yellow ribbon ties. Minor edgewear, boards somewhat bowed, lightly rubbed, ribbon ties somewhat worn. Brown endpapers, front free endpaper recto illustrated with a map of Kensington Gardens. Internally generally clean, top edge gilt, other edges untrimmed; pencil notations to half-title, minor edgewear, minor intermittent foxing. Very good or better.

    "Peter Pan in Kensington Gardens, as he [Rackham] recreated it, and as it appeared from Hodder and Stoughton with fifty full-page illustrations in colour mounted on thick paper according to the taste of the time, became the outstanding Christmas gift book of 1906 - and maintained its hold for many later Christmases."

    Hudson page 61, 168; Latimore & Haskell, page 27.
